Life Science idealab: Statistics to improve demand planning efficiency and effectiveness
Forecasting is an essential part of your business planning. A good forecast not only drives an efficient supply chain, it improves service levels and cash flows, and ultimately profitability. The use of statistics makes the forecasting process reliable, transparent, fast and objective. Depending on the possibility to centralize the planning process, a statistical forecast can be prepared very efficiently and eventually leads to a large decrease in planning organization costs. In this EyeOn breakfast session, we will explore the opportunities of using statistics and discuss the hurdles that potentially need to be overcome to implement statistical forecasting successfully. The setting offers a unique opportunity to mirror your planning process characteristics, dynamics and challenges with peers in the pharmaceutical and medical device industry, and learn how others apply advanced statistics to improve efficiency and effectiveness.
We would hereby like to invite you for our next Idea lab on Tuesday December 5th, 2017 from 14 to 17h00 in Cork, Ireland.
